Sheriff, rancher and single father
Josh McCain thinks he has his hands full running herd on his twin boys, until he meets Chrysie Atwater and her two small daughters. A little investigation shows that Chrysie is suspected of murdering her husband, but she claims that she's on the run to save her children from the men who really killed him and threatened them. Torn between believing her versus the evidence, the maverick lawman keeps them safe while he digs around in Chrysie's past to find a murderer. Joanna Wayne's deft hand with mystery, twisting tales and romance is evident in Maverick Christmas (4).
